toaster: analytics and visualization with Aster Database

toaster (a.k.a 'to Aster') is a set of tools to perform in-database analytics with Teradata Aster Discovery Platform. toaster embraces simple approach by dividing tasks into 2 steps: compute in Aster - visualize and analyze in R. toaster 'compute' functions use distributed, highly scalable, parallel SQL and map-reduce for processing of large data sets in Aster database. Then 'create' functions visualize results with boxplots, scatterplots, histograms, heatmaps, word clouds, maps, or slope graphs. Advanced options such as faceting, coloring, labeling, and others are supported with most plots.
